There are two things of which the state California has a surplus: Dry weather and famous musicians.
The current fires in California have ravaged over 130,00 acres of land as of Wednesday morning and claimed 50 lives, making it the most deadly wildfire incident in the state’s history. At least 265,000 people have been evacuated from their homes.
Among these evacuees is Miley Cyrus, who confirmed that she and fiancé Liam Hemsworth (along with their pets) lost their home to the fire.
